The Resident

by Mike DeSanto

Science Fiction

About the Story

This is a port of a REXX-Adventure, copying the menu-based OS/2 user interface. After being assaulted and cut in half, you are kept alive on the WEB by a person called Ringer. He offers you a deal: you perform some tasks for him, and he will fit your body with cybernetics. You need to gain entry to GMSC if you ever want your body back...
[--blurb from the Z-Files Catalogue]

Off-Site Reviews

I really did feel that I was exploring a virtual reality, with programs and web sites/bulletin boards given actual physical forms. There is a security program in the guise of a robot in one location and an amusing incident outside the "Shareware Shack." Puzzles are straightforward and logical and seem similar in scope to Prospect, perhaps this is due to the Rexx original having a certain style of play. On the other hand, the puzzles are not really original (few are) but old favourites given a new lick of paint.
